Cute, But Not the Perfect Ice Tray

This is a cute ice tray, but it’s not very functional. All the hearts are different sizes, the ice is difficult to get out of the molds, and there’s no channels between the molds or a raised ledge around the tray to keep you from spilling liquid everywhere.

Pros:
A dozen cute hearts, Tray doesn’t take up a lot of room, Can use it for multiple things

Only one tray, No channels to transfer liquid, no raised lip, Difficult to remove hearts

This is a handy and cute little ice tray from California Exotics that can be used to make ice, or whatever else you would like to mold in the shape of a heart. You could make heart shaped soaps, chocolates, jello, or jello shots. You can freeze with it, but don’t bake with it because it is entirely made of plastic.

The tray is considerably smaller than regular ice trays that hold about 14 standard ice cubes. It is 4” wide, 7” long, and 1” tall, so it won’t take up much room in the freezer. It has a total of 12 heart shaped molds. The hearts are different sizes, so you get 2 large hearts, 4 medium sized harts, and 6 tiny hearts.

The molds themselves are very sturdy, but the edges that hold the tray up are very flimsy. Mine came with a tear already in it which hasn’t effected the performance of the tray so far, but this makes me wonder how long it will take before this becomes a problem.

You have to be extremely careful when filling the tray with water or other liquids. Most ice trays have channels to transfer liquid once one mold gets too full. This tray doesn’t have that, and there is no raised edge around the tray to keep liquids from dripping off. This annoys me to no end, so when I get the chance, I’m going to make my own edge with a glue gun.

The tray can be washed with all your dishes with soap and water, but it is also dishwasher safe. There is nothing spectacular about the packaging because you can just store this in a drawer with all your kitchen extras. It comes packaged in a clear plastic sheath with a cardboard piece stapled on it so it can be displayed in a store shelf.
Experience
Most ice trays I have gotten come in sets of two, so I was really surprised when I only got one considering the price. I’d be a lot happier if there were two trays with 6 hearts each, and all the same size. With one tray, you only get enough ice to adequately fill two drinks, so get more of these trays if you plan on throwing a party. Even though there is a lot I don’t like about this tray, the cute little ice hearts it allows me to make definitely make my drinks stand out a little more.
